Ceremony seating has gone from standard to sensational, as rows of chairs are being replaced with more inventive alternatives. Three wedding planners share their ideas:

San Francisco destination-weddings planner Alison Hotchkiss uses oversized ottomans and floor cushions. NYC wedding designer Jung Lee has set up bales of hay for a Southern Carolina affair to play off of the farmland setting. And for a wedding in India, NYC planner Michelle Rago topped wooden cushions (shown here) to create a look that was casual-chic.
